Info

Firefox 3 needs your assistance! They want to make a new Guiness world record with most software downloads in one day, and I, as a long time Firefox user, feel dutybound to help. What about you?

Been there, done that.

Yes, I participated in the setting of a Guiness world record, back in 2003.

I'm wondering how many of the (currently) 130 people from North Korea are a joke. Do they even have the Internet there?

Probably people are picking those countries as a communism/open source joke.

Largest number of people passing on a spoken message, something like that. I never actually got to say it because they broke the record before it came to me, but I was there.

So it was overkill? Nice.

Anyway, I haven't been a part of any Guiness record, and I also feel guilty for enjoying Firefox...

I request the admins to please use a World map which is politically accurate and correct the current mistake. A huge part of India [as big as Albania!!!] is shown to be a part of a neighbouring country. At most this portion of our country can be claimed internationally to be 'disputed'. Such mistake isn't expected from responsible people at Firefox.
A handful of morons have the capability to turn ANYTHING into political debate. How utterly stupid is this.


Anyway, I've pledged my support.

Getting a Guinness world record is a lot like hiding pornography; if you get creative enough, you will find a niche so pointless that no other human being would even think of looking there.

What are you at getting terribly fat?

Also, Cuba has the internet now.

Apparently, ALL people from North Korea are jokes. Not a single download from there.

Anyway, over 12 million downloads! It did pretty well.

Yeah, so I downloaded Firefox 3, played around with it, and promptly uninstalled it, redownloaded FF2, and went about my merry way.

Just one thing, there's no previous record for them to break.

I'm now using Firefox 3. It's solid. You can resume downloads and everything. Plus clicking and dragging images and text around the screen is a hoot.

Truth. Firefox 3 is awesome. Too bad some of my plugins and addons don't work. I miss my imageshack toolbar.

The Firefox 3 address bar is rawkz. Just typing in keywords to find the URL - very good idea.

I unknowingly contrubuted to the downloads. I feel used.

It's nice. Still consumes a hella lot more memory than IE does, though.

Actually, it's common knowledge that Firefox is a memory hog. And I'm saying that as a Firefox supporter.

Ah. Never knew. On the topic of lag (which I always thought was directly proportionate to memory usage) Firefox lags a whole lot less than IE on my computer...

I have 2gb + 1 more RAM, so memory is not a problem on my laptop.
